Synodic month length 29.35 days

Length of current 970 lunation is 29 days, 8 hours and 19 minutes. It is 1 hour and 24 minutes shorter than next lunation 971 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 4 hours and 25 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 1 hour and 44 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠29°

This New Moon true anomaly is ∠29°. At beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠50.9°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep increasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of apogee (∠180°).

Moon after perigee

3 days after point of perigee on 8 June 2078 at 07:36 in ♉ Taurus. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 8 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 20 June 2078 at 07:41 in ♏ Scorpio.

Distance to Moon 374 420 km

Moon is 374 420 km (232 654 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 8 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 404 887 km (251 585 mi).

Moon after ascending node

3 days after its ascending node on 8 June 2078 at 00:37 in ♉ Taurus, the Moon is following the northern part of its orbit for the next 10 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from North to South in descending node on 21 June 2078 at 16:55 in ♏ Scorpio.

Moon in northern standstill

At 07:53 on this date the Moon is meeting its North standstill point, when it will reach northern declination of ∠27.059°. Next 14 days the lunar orbit will move in opposite southward direction to face South declination of ∠-27.037° in its southern standstill point on 25 June 2078 at 16:54 in ♑ Capricorn.
